Effective Immediately – Emikule Green Joins The Touch Records Roster

Spreading our collective wings is what Touch is all about, talent has no area code and if looked for, can be found anywhere.  Emikule Green from Tobago, by way of Trinidad, is the first to sign with Touch Records for the year 2016.  He brings his lyrical and vocal talent to the label and has the experience and ear of the islands with him.

We love the optimism and outlook that Emikule holds, because it fits with the Touch Records directive.  Joining with our production team will give Emikule the sound he wants to achieve and lend to the artistry Touch Records is looking for.

Much of the info on Emikule can be found on his artist page here.

Emikule says; “My love and appreciation for music started from an early age.  My mother was an excellent singer and this planted the seeds of music in my soul.  Based on her influence I started learning music and playing the piano at six.  Although I was unable to complete that course of study, I was involved in singing and songwriting in High School.  Actually, my first visit to the studio to do a recording took place around sixteen. However, I sacrificed the desire to make music and decided to pursue my studies and can say that I would not be alive today to perform gospel music if I had continued in that line of secular music.

Between 1999 – 2000 I was actively involved with a group formed by Sheldon “Brach B” Bradshaw.  We did several performances and sang at different concerts and competitions.  In the last year the song Tommy Boy was recorded with Brachy B and then I left to study at Brooklyn College in New York in 2001.  From that year I joined the youth choir at the Lafayette Avenue Church of God in Brooklyn.  For the next four years I continued with the choir until graduating and returning to Trinidad and Tobago in 2005.  After a short hiatus, in 2008 I joined Woodruffe and Associates – a music school located in Port of Spain.  During this time I did some voice training and music theory and continued at that school until 2010.

In December 2014 the decision was made to re-ignite my desire to do music at a professional level and the first demo release was made in February 2015.  My purpose for deciding to get immersed in the gospel music arena is a desire to reach out to the world and spread the Word of God using different styles/genres of music.  Music should not be boring or only conform to one style.  People are diverse and should be able to express themselves differently. It is not my attention to become a “star” in the industry. The glory does not belong to me, I just intend to do my best and wherever that takes me, there I will go.  Motivation comes in many forms, I have a history of being involved in music; there also is the desire to make beautiful music; a directive to spread God’s word; and to make the world a better place one song at a time.”

New Music In The Pipeline For 2016

Silence is not always golden, but it’s often necessary.  In the case of Touch Records silence for the better part of this year was the only option we had.  Our growth and infrastructure changes, demanded the bulk of the activity from the in-house staff, from building the newly integrated all in one website, to building a third studio and the new home of Celebrate Grace Recordings West Coast, to the signing of and working with the great talent roster we currently have.

All in all the year has been a success, but not in the way we would have expected to be.  But this has opened the door to a fresh start on the horizon.  With several new additions to the roster in 2015, we anticipate a strong 2016.  Project that have begun or are in the early stages look to be promising as well.

Projects like;

Rick Thomas – Light Rock & CCM
Juany Itturalde – Pop & Ballads
Geri Beri – R&B, Soul
Caleb Cross and his “Black And White Praise Band” – CCM, Praise & Worship
Anthea Lilacy – Pop, Pop – Rock, R&B
Antonio Resende – Pop
Michael Doran – Pop

All of these projects are being produced by UCAS Touch, the projects are either completely the production of UCAS or a collaborative effort between UCAS and the artists.  We look forward to a prosperous and fun year.
